How to Change User PATH variables on Linux. In this video we are going to use VIM to make changes to our .bashrc file in order to create new PATH variables for our user, we will then append the new PATH variable to the existing PATH and activate the changes by sourcing the edited bashrc.
Any changes you make in the bashrc file will only effect things on the user level. If you log in under a different user, the changes you made for the previous user will not be in effect. If you want to make system wide PATH changes, checkout this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhDiQZdUQRI
I show you how to do this on Linux Mint, but it should be the same for all other major Linux distros like Ubuntu and Debian
